Why bother making garland?

Every year I make two garlands to go down the railings of our front entrance, and every year it takes too long and it makes a mess all over the living room, but you know what? It's one of my favourite Christmas activities to do!  I love making them and they're kind of like a Christmas present to myself! I gather all the holly, cedar and pine from my yard, and twist it into a pre-made artificial garland... in the end it looks full and lively and survives our winter wind storms.

Why not spend an afternoon surrounded by lots of winter evergreens, a pair of garden shears and a hot cup of tea?


  1. Oh my goodness Kristen, that garland is magnificent! What a beautiful welcome to your house. Well worth messing up the living room for that:)

    1. Thanks so much, Jo! I don't mind messing up the house a bit when it comes to plants and painting!
